Black Friday is almost upon us. The day when some stores open their doors at 4am (Kohl's what are you thinking?) and others like H&M remain open an entire 24 hours. But how can you make the most of your shopping experience and avoid wandering aimlessly amidst the retail-hungry crowds? ReadWriteWeb has offered up some essential online resources that will prepare you for the craziest day of the year.
Sites such as Black Friday 2008 are dedicated to giving you up-to-the-minute info on discounts already being offered on products. For example, this Nintendo DS Lite was just listed today on Amazon for only $135, and this Canon Digital Camera is now on sale for $150. The site also lists store hours so you can plan your route accordingly.
Another way to get a leg up if you are online shopping is to take advantage of comparison sites like PriceGrabber and Shopping.com. These sites compare the prices of the same item from multiple retailers so you can find the best deal. Shopping.com has an extensive UGG category, but you can also peruse our UGG Guide for great deals.
Lastly, don't forget about Cyber Monday. If you can't find the item you want while pounding the pavement on Friday, you can always search for it from the comfort of your cubicle next week, when stores promote big sales online.
Good luck out there brave soldiers.
